I am a big fan of Stranger Things, not surprising because many are. When first images of Stranger Things season 3 I made the decision to distance myself from everything, I even unfollowed certain accounts until after release so the new content wouldn’t surprise me. This may sound crazy but that is one thing that I miss from back in the day is the element of surprise. Obviously they don’t show everything but when you can thoroughly enjoy a thing in its entirety and soak it all in, nothing is better. Scenes that are funny from a clip or trailer are 10x more funny during the show or movie because its designed for that specific moment.. again, element of surprise. Stranger things is for sure one of those once a generation shows, this will be looked back on as one of the highlights of this decade in film/television.
We planned on binge watching the entire series on release date, which we did. That Is the upside of being 8 episodes. The show was brilliant, I love the music and sound design from Stranger Things. If you haven’t watched this with a decent speaker setup or with some quality headphones you should try to. Definitely a show to turn off the lights and crank up the audio. I'm happy I didn’t watch or consume anything before watching season 3, the only thing I seen was the above images with the fireworks setting that was shared by someone on Facebook, which didn't ruin anything luckily.
This show is a great reminder that great work is always capable, so much is deployed. A staggering 300 HOURS are uploaded to YouTube every MINUTE. Over 100 MILLION photos are uploaded to Instagram DAILY. Work like Stranger Things is something to take in, and learn from. Congratulations to the cast and crew, who are breaking records on Netflix.
And yes, I have followed those accounts again, finding great content like this.
